Credit System - Recognition
EASD Mestre Mateo uses ECTS academic credit system for First Cycle studies (Fashion and Product Design Degrees). The student and the institution (through the Erasmus Coordinator and the School Supervisor) sign a complementary learning Agreement in which it's specified what achievements are going to be recognised when he or she comes back. This way the student goes away knowing that the transference of credits wil be full.
Short Cycles credit system is not ECTS yet, it will be on next years (these studies are being adapted to EHEA at the present moment by Spanish government). EASD Mestre Mateo currently are just sending traineeship Short Cycle students under Erasmus Program (smp) and we make the correspondance of credits through the equivalency of traineeship module.
Mechanisms to recognise mobility achievements
Once our students and EASD Mestre Mateo have signed the above mentioned complementary learning agreement, and regarding ECTS credit system, the recognition of the achievements is automatic. When the students comes back, provided that they have fulfilled every one of his or her obligations, the Director as legal representative of the Institution signs a Recognition of Credits; a document, based on the Transcript of Records provided by the partner institution.
